Trump Suggests Negative Media Coverage of The North Korea Summit is ‘Almost Treasonous’
In an exclusive interview set to air Saturday night on TBN, former Arkansas governor and 2016 presidential candidate Mike Huckabeesat down with President Donald Trump.
In what will likely be a wide-ranging interview, part of the conversation was focused on Trump’s recent summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, which Trump insists was widely successful.
However, CNN supervising producer Steve Brusk flagged this portion of their exchange.
The President of the United States in interview with "Huckabee" on his summit with King Jong Un says "we came to a wonderful agreement. It’s a shame that the fake news covers it the way they do it. Honestly, it’s really, it’s almost treasonous you want to know the truth. "

After telling Huckabee he and the North Korean dictator came to a “wonderful agreement,” Trump took the opportunity to blast “fake news.”
“It’s a shame that the fake news covers it the way they do,” Trump told Huckabee. “Honestly, it’s really, it’s almost treasonous you want to know the truth.”
This marks Trump’s fourth sit-down since the June 12 summit in Singapore. The president had previously spoken with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, Fox News’ Sean Hannity, and Special Reportanchor Bret Baier.
